Research Interests

Hasinur Khan works in high-dimensional data analysis (censored or complete), with his main research interest being in variable selection or variable reduction or model selection techniques and also in statistical inference with censored data found in fields like Statistical Genomics, Bioinformatics, Biostatistics etc.

He is also interested to work in statistical computing, Bayesian Statistics and Social Statistics. Besides, he is interested in statistical consultancy which includes general advice on the application of statistical methods including study design, data analysis and interpretation, and on all statistical aspects of business and academic research.
